Build From the Back

First of all, let me say that the 13-14 season was a disaster. We were so bad that it got unreal. We were the laughing stock of the league. All of my friends laughed at me for being a Spurs fan. I really want us to have a better season this coming year, so I have some suggestions. If we want to become the best team in London (now 3rd/4th), then we have to build from the back and improve our defensive stability. I will comment on all of our defensive players, from goalkeepers to defensive midfielders.

Goalkeepers: Hugo Lloris: Yes, he does some amazing saves at times. However, he is very rash. You see him running off his line all the time like a headless chicken or like a headless Kyle Walker. I know some of you like this sweeper keeper style. But NO goalkeeping greats played like that. He has to stop that and play like a real solid goalkeeper. Look at Petr Cech: Tall, good reflexes, a calming presence in goal. Look at David De Gea: great shot stopper and young. Look at Mignolet: great distribution and has a lot of potential to become a scouse legend. Even Szczesny had a great season. Hugo has to step it up. If not, I say we bid for one of David Marshall, Vorm, Lindegaard, or even Petr Cech. Any one of these four would upgrade our team.

Defenders: Kaboul: This guy is a finished article. I don’t know how many mistakes this guy made last season. We should ship him off to Qatar or the SPL. He would fit in at a team like Dundee or Aberdeen. The pace, or the lackthereof, will suit him. Dawson: Oh captain, my captain, or Oh snail, my snail. He is way too slow. Put Suarez, or Sturridge, or even Torres against him and we will concede 5-10 goals. Vertonghen: Yes, I know many of you will claim he is our best center back. He is. Best out of a bunch of trash. That isn’t saying much, is it. He has seriously regressed this past year. I say we give him one more season and if he stays the same, then we ship him off back to the Dutch league. Danny Rose: every team has a clown, and Danny is our clown. Kyle Walker: another clown. This guy is an accident waiting to happen. Look at Juan Mata’s second goal in the 2-4 defeat. Look at Demba Ba’s second goal in the 4-0 defeat. This guy is fast, and that is it. If you guys want speed, why not bid for Usain Bolt, or even Theo Walcott? Also, Soldado must’ve been a god during training because it is the only time that he gets to play against OUR defense. This must’ve been why AVB kept picking him. This joke of a striker probably enjoyed playing against four orange traffic cones in training.

Defensive Midfielders: Sandro: This guy is slow, offers no defensive screening, and offers nothing in attack. Sell him to Leicester for 2M. Dembele: See Sandro. Paulinho: we all thought this was going to be our Fernandinho, our Yaya Toure, or our Ramires. Yet he turned out to be a Fellaini… You've noticed I only commented on our defensive players, because I think this is our problem. The offense is OKAY. Like I said in my other post, I think we should get: 1. Thomas Vermalean. 2. Martin Demichels. 3. Kurt Zouma. 4. Steven Caulker. Combination of youth, experience, grit and a ball-playing mentality. Would probably cost a maximum of 25M.
